AllMusic Review by

This album of fiddle and banjo duets was recorded over two days in the spring of 1997, as John Hartford battled life-threatening cancer. The album's selection of traditional tunes from fiddler Jim Wood's native middle Tennessee gives both players plenty of room to show off their instrumental skills. This modest album is one of several tributes to older musical traditions that Hartford recorded late in his career. Solid if not the best, it remains worth searching out for the opportunity to hear the legend playing his banjo again.
